For $20 received a two hour birding tour in the Marsh piloted and narrated by a very knowledgeable and friendly guide. I recommend strongly to go on this tour if you are interested in the marsh and birding.

We had a great time, seeing parts of the marsh unaccessible any other way. Easy to access for seniors, entertaining even for kids. Great wildlife.

Want to see a flaming orange Oriole hop about on a tree? Want to learn to listen for the “pee wee” of the Eastern Wood-Pewee Flycatcher or witness a Bald Eagle parent guarding its nest with a newly hatched eaglet? Then take the Horicon Marsh Birding adventure. We took the 2-hour tour on a chilly, partly cloudy Sunday morning and spotted forty-two bird species. It’s a magical tour through the marsh waterways as swallows of all kinds cut through the air around us. Our guide, Marc, was an encyclopedia of marsh habitat and wildlife knowledge. We learned about how the marsh water levels are controlled and how to identify birds by their call or shape. Marc would cut off the engine so that we could see a particular bird or listen for a call amidst the bird orchestra. We won’t forget the American White Pelicans with their nine-foot wingspan, glistening in the morning sky as they circled above, or the Russian Olive bushes’ heavenly scent. Marc explained that the boat engine is a newer and quieter model that doesn’t disturb the habitat, making it an eco-friendly adventure. I highly recommend this boat tour to appreciate the beauty and the unique ecosystem that is the Horicon Marsh.

My husband and I were celebrating our anniversary. We love birds and had read that the Horicon Marsh was an excellent place to see a wide variety of birds. So, we reserved the sightseeing tours with the Horicon Marsh Tour. Mark was an excellent guide! He has many years of experience with birding in this area. He is very knowledgeable about the many indigenous as well as migratory species. He can spot by sight and sound, and is very excited to point out the birds so that you can easily enjoy viewing and noting their calls. He is also very environmentally conscious. The pontoon boats have newer motors that use very little fuel, and you can hear the birds while moving down the river and marsh area. You are able to see many species of birds on the boat tour that you do not see when driving or walking around the marsh – we saw and heard 42 different birds on Sun morning (May 26th). We had a wonderful time! Great value!!

The pontoon ride into the Horicon Marsh was very interesting. Our guide provided us with a lot of information. It was a cloudy, cool day, but the magic of the marsh still was apparent.
